Shuster Design Associates’ award winning portfolio of work speaks for itself and has propelled the South Florida interior design firm to be featured in the worlds most renowned “shelter magazines”. The most recognizable example of their “signature style” serves as the nerve center for all things Shuster Design and it happens to be their studio. As part of their 10th Anniversary collector’s issue, Tropic Magazine has listed the unmistakable home of the South Florida interior design firm as one of it’s 10 Mid-Century Modern Monuments.
To be recognized among iconic landmarks like the Fountainebleau, the Bacardi Tower and the Mai-Kai is not only an extreme honor, it’s a testament to Louis Shuster’s 25 year dream of making the building a home for the South Florida interior design firm. “It’s something we’re incredibly proud of.”, Louis remarks calmly. “Our business begins and ends here, it’s who we are, it’s our home and it’s as unmistakable as our body of work.”
Built in 1956 for the Robinson’s Beauty School, this masterful example of Mid-Century Modern architecture was designed by Dan Duckham, a local disciple of Frank Lloyd Wright. The building later housed the offices of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Broward County. After twelve years of occupation the building was put up for auction, the bidders were primarily interested in the land not the building except for one. Duckam explains, “Louis Shuster, a very successful high end interior designer, had admired the building for many years and had dreamed of owning it for his design studio. He was the successful high bidder, and began an extensive process of restoration. He was extremely sensitive to the original design intent and did a magnificent job. The existing spaces were a perfect fit for his needs and he furnished it beautifully. I would have to say that in the almost 50 year history of the building, it has never looked better.”
Also included in Tropic’s 10th Anniversary issue is “The Tropic Ten”, an article covering ten remarkable new condominiums that are being erected in sunny South Florida.

The signature is unmistakable.
